Focused classrooms maximise students’ on-task learning time by minimising disruptive behaviour and disengagement. This guide outlines key practices for creating focused classrooms:

  • Establish a system of rules and routines from day one. 
  • Explicitly teach and model appropriate behaviour. 
  • Hold all students to high standards.
  • Actively engage students in their learning. 

This guide is part of the Tried and Tested series, covering education practices that have been proven to make a positive impact on learning.
